The Nook

Greetings! Welcome to our quaint, rustic and oh-so-cosy flat nestled in the heart of Canillas de Aceituno, a charming municipality in the sun-soaked province of Málaga, within Andalusia, Spain. You’ll find us in the eastern part of the province, one of the many delightful municipalities that make up the comarca of Axarquia and the judicial district of Vélez-Málaga. We’re ideally situated at the base of the breathtaking “La Maroma” mountains.

Meet “The Nook” or “El Recoveco”, as it’s known in Spanish. We’ve poured a lot of love into tastefully refurbishing and decorating it, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that’s sure to put you at ease. You’ll find us right next to the bustling central plaza, where the property comes equipped with everything you need for your stay. With your own private entrance, you’re assured complete privacy for a comfortable stay. You’ll be charmed by the rustic decor and wooden beams that lend The Nook an authentic feel. It is the perfect place to kick back, relax, and soak in the stunning mountain walks and the town’s charm.

Step outside, and you’re just a minute’s walk from the central plaza, boasting a variety of supermarkets, a pharmacy, a bank complete with an ATM, cafes, restaurants, bars, a bakery, butchers, fishmonger and tabac. There are even doctors and dentists nearby. Fancy a swim? A public swimming pool is just a 10-minute walk away from The Nook, open from mid-June to mid-September.

Parking is a doddle, with free spots in and around the Plaza and a free multi-storey car park at the town’s entrance. Public transport is also at your fingertips, with a bus that runs from Monday to Saturday from the centre of the central Plaza to all major towns. And if you need to get to the towns, airports or beaches, a local taxi firm is on standby.

Our flat comes with a few bells and whistles, too. Enjoy a good night’s sleep with our King size and super-size memory foam mattresses. Unwind with your favourite shows on our HD flat-screen TV with English and Spanish channels. Stay connected with our free 600mb Fibre internet. The flat is also equipped with two lovely Juliette balconies, aircon, heating in the bathroom, a double electric hob and microwave grill, a refrigerator, a toaster and tea and coffee-making facilities.

So, whether you’re just passing through or planning a more extended stay, The Nook provides a welcoming and homely base. We can’t wait to host you!

Canillas de Aceituno

We fell head over heels for this stunning mountain town. As walking and hiking enthusiasts, we were completely taken in by the breathtaking views that this area had to offer.

With backgrounds in building and customer service, we took the plunge and bought our apartment in March 2023. With plenty of elbow grease, we transformed it into a classic Spanish holiday rental, with a good old English twist. We finished up our refurbishments and were chuffed to bits to open our doors on the 11th of May, 2023.

We’ve been lucky enough to work and travel around Europe, thanks to a job with an English and French camping company. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting and greeting guests from all walks of life and from every corner of the globe. This experience also allowed us to prepare their accommodation to the highest standard. On top of that, we’ve been Maintenance Engineers, tasked with the upkeep and repair of mobile homes across various sites throughout Europe.

“The Nook” or “El Recoveco”, as it’s known in Spanish, has been offering a warm welcome to guests since May 2023. We can’t wait to extend that welcome to you!
